Effort to foster ‘start-up’ culture

ROING, Mar 30: AMYAA NGO in collaboration with IIT, Guwahati, Quest Alliance, Bengaluru and Lower Dibang Valley District Administration organized its third workshop in the start-up incubation series, ‘MISSION ROING: Entrepreneurship workshop to foster start-up culture for social innovation and skill development with education’ on agri-business development from on March 29 and 30 at Mayu-II Rehko Hall here.

R K Paul Chawang, Secretary of AMYAA NGO while outlining the objectives of the workshop highlighted socio-economic constraints like low produce holding capacity of farmers, lack of storage warehouse and absence of organized marketing system/growers which forced them to sell their produce through commission agents at a marginal price.

The workshop was organized with the objective of interacting with the farmers’ club members to make them understand the crop production system and marketing system of their produce and subsequently develop strategies to deal with those challenges under the guidance of Dr Charu Monga, Asstt Professor (Design and Entrepreneurship) and Dr Harsh Chaturvedi, Asstt Professor (Energy) and Shiv Mishra, Agribusiness consultant (Kolkata).

The workshop was attended by SHG and farmers’ club members of the district.
